Our purpose is to assess the needs and resources of the Town of Franklin in the face of Peak Oil, and to report back to the Town Board and to the people of Franklin. We are a group of Franklin residents who meet for one evening a month at a member's home. We begin with a pot luck supper before we get down to actual business. All are welcome to join us, to ask questions and help us answer them, to share thoughts and ideas
We have a number of projects that we hope to move from idea to action:Local food production network Skills and services exchange Goods exchange Ride sharing bulletin board and/or website Farm to School Program for school lunches Community Greenhouses Community Energy Production Community Health NetworkIn a nutshell, we propose to imagine a more energy efficient habit of living, and to put it to work here in Franklin, for a brighter, more sustainable future.
